It’s Seder Time at the Finny’s …

Observing Passover at the first Seder … felt like Spring time inside … but the blanket of snow the first half of the day could have fooled you.  It was fun, crazy, delicious … wonderful to share the tradition with family & friends.


Bokka’s 60th Birthday Disney Cruise (VIDEO)

For my 60th birthday (May 28, 2010), all I wanted was to spend time with all the kids & grandkids.  And what better way to do that than to go on a Disney Cruise with all 15 of us?!!!  Everyone had a blast, especially the kids.  Since I was still recovering from my back surgery, I could not participate in all the events … but I did my darnedest to keep up.

Lo & behold, Koby just put together a FABULOUS video montage to remember our wonderful trip together.  Click on the link below & ENJOY!

Charlie’s Hat Trick

We all cheered as Charlie scored 3 goals & 2 assists that day to help the Blackhawks win their game.  Great skating, Charlie!  Not pictured: Janis & Harvey Eisman who trekked in from Flint to root on Charlie.  Jan & H, we love you guys!!!

Rosh Hashanah … Celebrating a New Year with Family & Friends!!!

Wishing everyone a happy, sweet, healthy, & peaceful new year!  Once again, we had a great feast & celebration with family & friends.  We missed the Schwartzes, Grandma Fran, Shannon, & Teddy.  Flu & other stuff kept us all from being together.  Oh well … next year in Jerusalem!

Stan’s 60th Bday Video Tribute – coordinated by Darren, Brett, & Steve

Stanley was roasted & toasted, at his 60th birthday surprise party, in a wonderful video tribute from several friends & family members.  Darren Schwartz’s videotaping & editing skills resulted in a hilarious & poignant presentation.  Thanks also go out to Brett Finsilver & Steven Ben-Ezra.  This is the edited version that was shown at the party.  I was the BITCH during the editing process, yelling “Cut! Cut! Cut!”  My deepest apologies to all of those who videotaped loving, funny, creative messages to Stanley … but ended up on the cutting floor for the sake of brevity & the sanity of our guests.  I love you all!!!  Enjoy the video …
